Suggested Mass Line-Up for December 11, 2011 (3rd Sunday of Advent)

December 11, 2011
3rd Sunday of Advent Year B
Liturgical Color: Purple but you can use also Old Rose or Pink since this Sunday is Gaudete Sunday or Sunday of Joy.

Hi before you continue to read the content below, I just wanted to know who are you or those people who visited my blog. It's been almost a year now that I post suggested line-up of songs of mass and I keep on wondering who are you guys and where you from... Would you mind to give time to post and introduce yourself at the comment link below or just click the follow button at the right side of the blog so that I will directly the content of this blog weekly to your email... I'm curious and I hope you will cooperate.... Thank you :)

1.       Ayaw Paglangan Ginoo - swak for the theme since we're still waiting for HIS coming
2.       Umanhi Ka, Ayaw Paglangan - can be found in Ad-5 in old Cebuano Songbook or page 170 in GKK Songbook.
3.       Balang Araw ( Borres, Francisco ) this is only a suggestion. Try to change the " Narito na ang Manunubos, Luwalhatiin ang Dios" into " Darating na ang Manunubos, luwalhatiin ang Dios."
4.       Ang Puso Koy Nagpupuri (Nagagalak ang aking Espiritu) Clear this first. I do not believe this is an exclusively Marian song. Its also about rejoicing.
5.        Purihit Pasalamatan (Esteban & Hontiveros) sa masyang awit
6.       Save us O Lord (Dufford) I acknowledge this is Lenten, pero yung message niya okay na okay kay kumpareng John the Baptist.
7.       Play Before the Lord (Dufford) Stand among His people here, telling of all His ways can be interpreted to be so St. John the Baptist
8.       I Rejoiced (Foley)

1.       Kyrie (R. Villanueva)
2.       Ginoo Malooy Ka (Honteveros)- kadtong naay intro nga Em-Am-B7 4/4 ang beat
3.       Panginoon Maawa Ka ( Cayabyab)
4.       As We Prepare

Lighting of the 3rd Candle (PINK)  in the Advent Wreath: O Come, Divine Messiah or Halina, Jesus

Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11
61:1 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners;
61:2 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;
61:3 to provide for those who mourn in Zion-- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, to display his glory.
61:4 They shall build up the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
61:8 For I the LORD love justice, I hate robbery and wrongdoing; I will faithfully give them their recompense, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
61:9 Their descendants shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge that they are a people whom the LORD has blessed.
61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my whole being shall exult in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
61:11 For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.

Psalm 126
126:1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.
126:2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."
126:3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we rejoiced.
126:4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb.

126:5 May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy.
126:6 Those who go out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, carrying their sheaves.
Luke 1:46b-55
1:46b "My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
1:48 for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant. Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
1:49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
1:50 His mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation.
1:51 He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.
1:52 He has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly;
1:53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty.
1:54 He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy,
1:55 according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants forever."

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 
5:16 Rejoice always,
5:17 pray without ceasing,
5:18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
5:19 Do not quench the Spirit.
5:20 Do not despise the words of prophets,
5:21 but test everything; hold fast to what is good;
5:22 abstain from every form of evil.
5:23 May the God of peace himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
5:24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do this.

1.       Ang Ginoo, Among Kahayag - D12 sa Old Cebuano Songbook
2.       Haduol na ang Adlaw - D17 sa Old Cebuano Songbook
3.       Aleluya, Lamdag Ka - sibo kaayo sa Gospel
4.       Aleluya Kami ay Gawin Mong Daan - this is good for Advent as preparation of HIS coming
5.       Alleluia (Cayabyab)

John 1:6-8, 19-28 
1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
1:7 He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.
1:8 He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.
1:19 This is the testimony given by John when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"
1:20 He confessed and did not deny it, but confessed, "I am not the Messiah."
1:21 And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the prophet?" He answered, "No."
1:22 Then they said to him, "Who are you? Let us have an answer for those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?"
1:23 He said, "I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way of the Lord,'" as the prophet Isaiah said.
1:24 Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.
1:25 They asked him, "Why then are you baptizing if you are neither the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?"
1:26 John answered them, "I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not know,
1:27 the one who is coming after me; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandal."
1:28 This took place in Bethany across the Jordan where John was baptizing.

Each of us has favorite words from the bible which speak to our heart and give us solace in difficult times.
Last week we heard one of mine: Comfort, O comfort, my people. Every time, I hear this passage form
Isaiah 40:1, I am reminded of Gods love, not only for me, but for everybody. Just a few simple words, but   in them I find the real essence of what God is all about, and I know that I am not alone. God is with me, andGod cares! What more could I want? How awful it would be, if I was all alone, and no one cared. Each of us, no matter how much we are loved by others, needs Gods love, and these word of caring and comfort       from the one that created us really need to be heard, felt, and cherished.

In some ways this mortal life is a lonesome journey. We enter alone, and we exit alone, or so it seems to
those who have no faith. But, God wants us all to know that we are never alone, and that our heavenly
parent is always at our side. Let us hear those cherished words again, and ask God to etch them in our
heart: Comfort, O comfort, my people.

There is no better example of a person who knew the strength and the hope that comes from knowing
Gods loving care and presence, than Mary. How else could she have said: My soul, magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. Think about it for a minute. Mary knew God was with her. She
knew she was loved, and in this she found courage and safety. She could handle anything and everything
always in hope; never complaining, just pondering  and trusting deep in her heart when things went wrong. Marys Spirit was able to rejoice in God, and Gods wants this same joy to be yours and mine so that we
too can say to ourselves, and all that we meet on lifes journey: My spirit rejoices in God, my Savior.

This is St. Pauls message to us this Third Sunday of Advent. Brothers and Sisters, he says, rejoice
always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. In truth, Paul knew that this was possible because God was with us.
Without Gods love and Gods presence in our lives this is only a futile wish. But with God at our side, and
in our heart, willing it for us, it can become our reality, our way, if we accept Gods love and comfort into our hearts.

In this weeks Gospel we hear of a man sent by God, named, John the Baptist. A man who testified about
the light so that all might believe through him. As we hear John testimony about the light, we are
reminded  that God is with us - this is what the name Jesus means. As we celebrate Eucharist this third
advent Sunday, let us pray together for a deeper and more fervent faith experience in Gods presence and Gods love. And, let us pray that we will more fully appreciate Gods ultimate act of love for us - his birth,
death, and resurrection.

May our lives be a living proclamation to the world of Gods Love.

1.       Andama ang Dalan
2.       Nagahalad Kami
3.       Diyutay Lang Kini
4.       Ang Tanging Alay Ko 
Prioritize Stanza 3. One reinforces the more common message of Advent even more when in Stanza 3 this is sung: Aking hinihintay ang Yong pagdarating, Jesus rather than pagbabalik, Jesus. Nevertheless, pagbabalik can certainly remain, as again this season also has an eschatological
5.       Panalangin sa Pagiging Bukas Palad (Arboleda & Francisco)
6.       Panalangin Maging Bukas Palad (Rodrigo & Ramirez)
7.       Prayer for Generosity (Arboleda) To give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the
wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and ask not for reward is so John the Baptist.
8.       Dwelling Place (May Christ find a dwelling place in our hearts) (Foley)

1.      Santos (Mass III Villanueva)
2.      Santo, Santo, Santo (Francisco-Arboleda-Torres)
3.      Holy, Holy, Holy (Dufford-Schutte)

1.      Si Kristo atong Handumon (Cebuano version of Si Kristo ay Gunitain)
2.      Si Kristo ay Gunitain
3.      Memorial Acclamation (Marcelo-Fenomeno)
1.      Amen (Set 6)
2.      Dakilang Amen (Francisco)
3.      Amen Alleluia (Bayogos)

1.      Amahan Namo
2.      Ama Namin (Francisco-Arboleda-Torres)
3.      Our Father (Pat-Martell)

1.      Kay Imo Man
2.      Sapagkat Sayo ang Kaharian (Francisco-Arboleda-Torress)
3.      For The Kingdom

      AGNUS DEI:
1.      Kordero sa Dios (Pastorella version by Fr. Villanueva) - bibohon man gud ni siya nga tempo
2.      Kordero ng Diyos (Hontiveros)
3.      Lamb of God (Folk)

1.          Andama ang Dalan (Ad-2)
2.          Panahon Na (F-14)
3.          Awit ng Paghahangad (Cenzon) Magagalak na aawit
4.          Liwanag ng Aming Puso: Lentish but (...sa amin manahan Ka...) 
5.          Pananatili (yayakapain ang landasin...Mo is again terno sa G No. 3)
6.          Empty Space (Foley) So You may one day see my face pero some consider this for the Sacred Heart mas apt. Bagaman mas nauugnay ito sa Kabanal-banalang Puso, this is taking it one step further: If we are anticipative and waiting so much, we might as well wait for the right One. Besides, this song could even help in increasing the longing. My own opinion lang ang last sentence; Id love it if youd
disagree para natu3 tayo lahat thru exchange of reasonable reasons. Ang panget ng English ko, but
you get what I mean.
7. In Him Alone
8. God of Silence (Francisco)
9. Holy Darkness As we await You pero some consider this for the Easter Vigil mas apt.

11. One Thing I Ask (Tirol)
12. This Alone (Manion)
13. One More Gift (Francisco)
14. Prayer of Saint Francis (Temple)

1.       Umanhi Ka Mesiyas (Ad-3)
2.       Ang Tawag sa Panahon
3.       Tanda ng Kaharian ng Diyos (Morano & Francisco)
4.       Awit ng Pasasalamat (Hontiveros) Tayoy magagalak
5.       A Time Will Come for Singing (Schutte) 
6.       Wait for the Lord
7.       Life Forever More (Ellerton & Francisco)
8.       The Lord is my Light. Prioritize Stanza 2: Your face, Lord, I seek.

Malapit na po ang Pasko.... Aginaldo ko po :)...... Sana'y makatulong po ito sa inyo.... Kumanta po kayo ng mabuti at laging isapuso ang bawat lyrics ng kanta at nang maganda ang kalalabasan nito :)
